Why does this keep happening?

"I felt terrible for Jason," manager Terry Collins said. "As he always does, he plays the game only one way -- all out. Never backed off anything, didn't back off the wall, didn't back off the broken rib. He still dove and still played the game the only way he knows how." 

Jason Bay was placed on the 7 day DL with concussion like symptoms.   The video from the game is here on the Mets site. 

Jason Bay is one of my favorite baseball players ever.  The dude flat out plays hard.  Two years ago he got a concussion in LA making a very tough catch in left field.

Since joining the Mets he has been absolutely plagued by injuries.  It's such a shame to see a player with his talent level keep getting injured.

Here's 4 new Jason Bay hits added to my collection.
2007 UD Exquisite Imagery AUTO 8/25
This great looking photo was part of the 2007 UD Exquisite Imagery line.  It's a sticker auto that cost me less than $16 shipped.
2009 UD Ballpark Collection AUTO JERSEY
This card was picked up off ebay for about $12 shipped and features another Bay auto, a white jersey swatch, and an image of Jason in a Pirates hat.
2005 UD Milestone Materials
I picked this up for $2 shipped.  It's a plain grey jersey relic.

2005 Prime Patches BAT 48/150

Here's hoping that Jason recovers quickly through this injury.
